And She Was Overshadowed By The HolySpirit
It will interest you to know that Mary wasn't the only woman overshadowed by the Holy Spirit. She was exceptional because she was the Mother of the Messiah.
Women allover the world who are involved with childbearing are been "overshadowed by the Holy Spirit" and share in Mary's grace.
How is this so? Just like God, women are involved in divinity which makes them "creators." A woman must first be overshadowed by the Holy Spirit in order to birth a new life into the world.
Luke 1:42b "Blessed is the fruit of thy womb." More so, the blessing of the womb extends to other creatures(Female animals). Motherhood equals divinity.
Notwithstanding, the men have a role in the creation story because only through a man's (male) help, a new life is being formed.
Ever wondered why some mothers lose their lives in the process during childbirth? "Physical birth or Creation" isn't an easy path to tread, never was (after the fall of Adam and Eve), and never will be.
The only assurance for Mothers is evidenced in Exodus 1:19
"The Midwives said to Pharaoh, because the Hebrew Women are not as the Egyptian Women; for they are vigorous and give birth before the midwife can get to them. So God was good to the midwives, and the people multiplied, and became very mighty."
God in his own wisdom has made all women vigorous for the task ahead.
Dear Expectant Mother, You are overshadowed with the Holy Spirit and Blessed is the fruit of your womb!
Have a rewarding week dear Fam!
